The most effective and well recognized treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy. CPAP therapy involves wearing a mask which is connected by tubing to a device that delivers positive pressurized air to the airway. This air pressure acts as a splint to keep the upper airway open, preventing the collapsing of the tissues that can lead to airway obstruction and sleep apneas.
CPAP, APAP and Bi-Level Therapy for Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Positive airway pressure therapy can be delivered by various types of equipment depending upon your personal needs.
CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) delivers pressurized air at one fixed pressure. Newer technology provides faster, even more comfortable delivery of air pressure.
Sleep CPAP units are small, portable and nearly silent. Every sleep CPAP unit includes a portable bag for easy travel.
APAP (Automatic Positive Airway Pressure) automatically adjusts pressure levels based on a patient’s breathing.
Bi-Level Therapy provides higher pressure when breathing in and a lower pressure when breathing out.
These units are two pieces with one side providing the pressure setting and collecting data while the other side provides humidified air through tubing which is attached to the mask. A data card is included in each machine and continuously collects information that will be reviewed with the patient’s doctor periodically.
